Imparare le tecniche di foggiatura e la cottura delle terre

Quando ci si avvicina al mondo della ceramica spesso si incontrano le prime difficoltà già nella fase di modellazione proprio per mancanza di competenze nelle tecniche di foggiatura dei manufatti. Gli impasti ceramici e le argille possono essere lavorati in diversi modi e in questo corso di base ci proponiamo di introdurvi ad alcune delle tecniche fondamentali come il colombino, la lastra, la stampatura e il colaggio.

La scelta del tipo di argilla da impiegare ed individuare la migliore tecnica di modellazione per la produzione delle forme sarà di basilare importanza per avere successo nel portare a termine i vostri progetti ed evitare perdite di tempo e di denaro.

Il corso non è finalizzato alla realizzazione di oggetti finiti ma si limita alla produzione in libertà di esperienze costruttive, tattili e di cottura sempre sotto la guida del docente.

LA SINTERRACOTTA | Giovanni Cimatti

30-31 March 2019

Monocottura con gres a partire da 1050 gradi

Una buona ceramica si distingue non solo per come è rivestita e la sua intrinseca arte ma sopratutto per il suo corpo che è forte e compatto quando è realizzata in gres. Oggi è possibile utilizzare un innovativo gres bianco, anche senza raggiungere la faticosa e costosa alta temperatura, ed avere la sinterizzazione di questa argilla in tutti i tipi di forni per ceramica.

Durante il corso faremo anche esperienza di come sia possibile ridurre ulteriormente i costi facendo una cottura unica di argilla e smalti che viene infatti definita monocottura. Useremo un'argilla plastica che rende facile modellare qualsiasi tipo di forma e particolari medium per l'applicazione a pennello di rivestimenti che saranno campiti anche con l'impiego di maschere adesive. Sara possibile infine anche applicare, in seconda cottura a 900 gradi, un simpatico e innovativo smalto oro.

Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 e termina alle ore 17:00 del sabato e inizia alle ore 9:00 e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica.

FULL IMMERSION IN THE MULTICOLORED PORCELAIN | Martha Pachon

12-13-14 July 2019

From Jasper to Nerikomi

One of the finest qualities of porcelain is its sensuality to the touch, plus the surface can be enriched with vibrant colors or sharp contrasts of black and white. There are ancient and complex techniques of the "Neriage" family which, with a modern twist, allow to express, through many aesthetic solutions, from a jewel, a vase, a sculpture, an object, to a complex installation. Among the constructive techniques of colored body porcelain, by hand and with mold will be the contemporary revisiting of: L'Agata, Jasper, Zebra, Nerikomi, Mosaico with composite tiles and Mishima.

To take full advantage of the potential of these techniques, all the possible exercises will be carried out to get to know their strength and refinement. In addition, the realization of all the techniques will be followed by the tricks to avoid problems, breakages or deformations, reaching the maximum of beauty in the colors.

Liquid porcelain without use of the mold and in sigle firing

Transparency is one of the most important qualities of porcelain and usually requires a prolonged, precise and very accurate processing to obtain a piece of fine beauty highlighted by the translucency of the light. This course allows you to develop two simple and immediate techniques that will facilitate and strengthen creativity to develop many projects without the use of large resources and experience in the field of porcelain.

We will use the slip porcelain without the use of molds and single-firing and the two techniques, one for objects with organic shapes and another for objects with geometric shapes and more precise.

The 14-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on Saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on Sunday.

PAPER GLAZE, LO SMALTO FELICE | Giovanni Cimatti

Dopo la rivoluzione della tecnica Paper Clay si può intuire che la strada è aperta a nuove contaminazioni.

Giovanni Cimatti ha fatto una ricerca basata sulla possibilità di inserire fibre all'interno di rivestimenti vetrosi e questo è il primo risultato del quale vuole farvi partecipi.

Si tratta di smalto contenente fibre di carta e per questo si possono fare applicazioni a forte rilievo; in questo caso solo con composizioni di vetri ad elevata viscosità. La tecnica è aperta a continui sviluppi e a diverse temperature. Durante il corso verranno fatte esperienze di applicazione di una formula già sviluppata che sarà possibile colorare e applicare su supporti semplici che verranno realizzati la mattina del sabato e che essiccheranno durante la pausa pranzo.

Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 e termina alle ore 17:00 del sabato e inizia alle ore 9:00 e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica.

Compreso nel corso:

14 ore di docenza | i materiali necessari allo svolgimento del corso | le cotture | nr. 2 pasti brunch (colazione e pranzo) | una scatola omaggio (con campionatura dei materiali utilizzati durante il corso)

Imparare a lavorare con gli smalti, l'applicazione facile, la decorazione e la cottura della ceramica.

Quanta acqua si deve aggiungere nella preparazione dello smalto? Come si deve procedere per fare una buona applicazione? In questo corso vogliamo introdurvi alla smaltatura dei manufatti ceramici fornendo alcune competenze specifiche di base. Partiremo dalla conoscenza dei prodotti (Smalti, Cristalline, Colori, etc.) con le loro peculiarità, inizieremo da come si dove procedere nella loro preparazione e termineremo con la possibilità di provare le principali tecniche di smaltatura e con una guida alla cottura ceramica.

In particolare tratteremo l’applicazione per immersione, per spruzzatura con aerografo e la smaltatura a pennello con l'ausilio di particolari veicoli che consentono una migliore applicazione. Verranno presentati i passaggi necessari per ottenere effetti nei rivestimenti anche con applicazioni in più strati che saranno realizzati su supporti in argilla, già cotti, forniti dall'organizzazione: terracotta, terraglia tenera, terracotta di argilla da gres e semirefrattaria da Raku.

Ed infine saranno affrontati anche i difetti che si riscontrano nella smaltatura e a questo proposito è possibile portare eventuali lavori personali finiti sulle cui problematiche sarà possibile svolgere una interessante lezione.
